Peter Andre decided to end his reality TV show because he wants to ''go on a high''.

The 'Mysterious Girl' singer decided to pull the plug on his ITV2 series 'Peter Andre: My Life' himself after several years of documenting his career, relationships and three children - Princess Tiaamii, six, son Junior, eight, and step-son Harvey, all from his previous relationship with ex-wife Kate Price - rather than see it get axed.

Speaking TV series 'This Morning', he explained: ''It's going to be the 10th series since I started and we go on a high - the ratings have been amazing, the last series was the highest rating we've ever had ... and I thought let's leave it on a high and bow out gracefully. I can always revisit in a few years if I want to - but there are opportunities overseas that I haven't been able to do, and I want to do more presenting and maybe one-off specials...''

The 40-year-old star's departure from the reality show, comes after he announced in July he is expecting a child with his 23-year-old girlfriend, medical student Emily MacDonagh after a year of dating.

When asked if Emily's reluctance to share her life on screen was a motivation for quitting the show, Peter replied: ''Maybe she's mentioned that a couple of times... and I am with someone who is a lot more private and even though I am public and I could never ask for privacy, but you have to also respect the other person.

''But it's not just that, I do honestly think that we've done it and the public have been amazing, and I would hate it for the ratings to start slipping and then I have to stop.''

Peter also appeared in a string of reality shows with ex-wife Katie, including 'When Jordan Met Peter' and 'Jordan & Peter: Marriage and Mayhem'.
